House update: Week 12

Ryan and I spent the weekend demolishing the old office...lets just say I've reaffirmed that manual labor is not my thing.

One "Renovation Realities" moment - multiple blisters - the sorest body this girl has felt in years - and two days later....

When Ryan initially pulled off the paneling in the room, he uncovered two doors that were hidden in the walls.  Apparently when they initially sheet rocked the room, they just covered over these doors.  

So we salvaged them and I have a few ideas pinned for how to use them.  :)  {Ryan has a love/hate relationship with Pinterest}

Ryan's uncle Karl came over on Saturday to put the stairs into the basement.

He and his crew had finished framing everything in the basement last week.  Below is what will be our family room.

These doors are off of the family room and lead to the bathroom and bedroom.  Right off of where Henry is standing is the door to the storage room. 

Here is the storage room looking into the utility room. {Which is on the other side of the stairs}

And the biggest change came today when they knocked through what was once our office into our living room.  The pictures really do nothing to the feeling you get walking in through the garage.

Its hard to tell from the picture, but the office demo also revealed a bead board ceiling that is in really good shape.  Hopefully we will be able to incorporate it into the room and keep it.

I was already ready to move back in, but now I am truly excited to have this new living space.  Its going to feel like a completely different house.  And like Ryan said, its finally "our house" and not his parents or grandparents.  So exciting!!!!

Next we pray that the weather cooperates and they can finish the roof of the garage.  The trusses are up {which I just realized I didn't get pictures of}, but they still have to sheet it.
